This Show Totally Rocks 48 22nd August

I was getting a severe pain in the face with how this week was going, but miraculously this show pulled me clean out of my funk.  No better way to start off the show than with a bit of Melt Banana, a smidgeon of Men Without Pants and a classic from the Butthole Surfers.  The show is pretty heavy on the auld distorted vocals so next up its Snake Flower 2, The High Tension Wires, The Marked Men, Bass Drum of Death and a lo-fi belter from Matt K Shrugg.  Ohio’s finest garage rockers Gaunt are up next before Dwarves and The Supersuckers bash out a couple you’ve probably heard before.  Ex-Local boy Darragh from the Restarts (which is his official name) is next with his new band Trashcat and then it’s a brand new one from Diarrhea PlanetInfinity Cat Label bosses Jeff the Brotherhood bring the grooves before Starfish bring the guitar.  Another new one off the latest Night Birds album is up next.  Dublin legend Damo Weber gets a shout out with his band Stomach and then his contribution to one of the Rock Jihad Xmas compilations- Naked Raygun gets a bit of airtime.  I found a rockin cover of this Husker Du classic by Robert Palmer of all people this week and then it’s two more classics from The Descendents and Dag Nasty to round things off.  This week all links on this page take you to interviews.  Click, watch, laugh, rock.

Radio Cure 13

This week’s offering is an hour of artists who either left or took time away from their respective groups to concentrate on solo material. Many of these artists made themselves known through their solo work, many of them failed due to it, some of them had no other options and a few of them just do it for the fun, see if you can tell which ones do which.
